Nice location, nearby pub.
This cottage was 15 minutes, 10 miles from Ely in a quite location opposite the Flag and Lamb pub in Welney village. The cottage was clean although some cobwebs were seen next to the cupboard in the living area. Concerns to us were that there was no hot water on arrival as the boiler was not switched on, despite the information booklet stating that this would be on and the immersion heater would provide plentiful hot water. Washing up liquid and dishwasher tablets were not provided despite being assured by the owner that these were included in a phone call prior to arrival. There were light bulbs out in the dining area that had not been replaced and no rubbish bags were provided despite instructions for the refuse/ recycleable collection being provided. We had a very enjoyable stay but these comments are provided to improve the enjoyment for future guests.

1 Laburnum was a lovely cottage and we enjoyed the weekend immensely.

Nice Cottage in Good Location
This is a good little cottage in a good location. The cottage is old and does show a wee bit wear and tear but that is to be expected. We were there for a full week and did make full use of the kitchen facilities for breakfast and lunch. There are only 2 small niggles, none of which would put me off booking the cottage again, and that would be the double bed's mattress is past its best and should be replaced although the size of the bed was excellent. The other niggle was the hobbit sized ironing board (only 2ft in length and a table top version), trying to iron a grown mans shirt proved difficult as well as long skirts. Normally wouldn't worry about creased clothes but we were down visiting relatives for a special birthday and going out for a posh do and these items were crushed in our cases. There is plenty of room in the cottage to store a normal iron board so did wonder why the hobbit one was there.... The Lamb and Flag pub which really is just across the road does excellent food and has wonderful staff.

We had a very pleasant holiday at 1 Laburnum Cottage. We found the cottage to be quiet and comfortable, just what we were looking for. The perfect place to spend a relaxing holiday. Recommended!
